So, I tried reading Finnegans Wake, but it just seems pointless. Are the other two worth trying? I wanna find out if I'm ready to exit /lit/ once and for all

I got about 50 pages into What Maisie Knew and was extremely bored. I just moved on to other books. Is Henry James just not for me or did I not give him enough of a chance? The prose was just not sinking in for me and there is so much that I want to read that I sort of felt like I was wasting my time.

You're right, don't listen to him. James is (for good reason, mind you) entry level English undergrad material.
